Loki Turns into a Pony
The gods agree to hire a builder to build a wall around the Golden City. The builder asks for the sun, the moon, and Freya the goddess of beauty as payment. They agree if he could do it in one winter because they believed he would not be able to, therefore they could keep the sun, the moon, and Freya. With help from his horse, the builder was almost finished before the winter. So Loki turned into a pony to distract the horse. The builder was not able to finish.
